As a full-time student who works part-time on the weekends I am in bed and exhausted by 9 p.m. most days, yet I still love getting outside and going for a run. One night I woke up in the middle of the night and turned off all my alarms on my phone. So you can see that college life doesn’t always lend itself to a great workout schedule. I somehow always find myself starting over with my goals.
The first half marathon you complete is one that sticks with you for a long time and encourages you to push farther with every race after. You remember which mile you cried at, or you recall the motivational words you heard from those running around you. For me, it was mile 8 where I felt like I couldn’t run any farther. But the reason I kept moving for 5 more miles was because I was with my mom—and this was our first race together. Growing up, my mom and I always had a strong relationship.
If you’ve heard of intermittent fasting and immediately thought, There’s no way I can do it, you’re in good company. While many people aren’t able to forego their sacred (and quite commonplace) three meals per day, thousands of others are jumping on the intermittent fasting train. This phenomenon has us dying to know what exactly is compelling fitness-minded humans of the world to voluntarily skip meals—sometimes fasting for up to 36 hours at a time.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
